Lori’s Wedding Cake

My friend Lori got married last Saturday and I had the honor of making her wedding cake. The cake was dark chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream filling. The cake was also covered with vanilla buttercream. He accent color was fuschia, so I made large roses as decorations. I wanted to create a simple but elegant look for her.

Mario Character Birthday

Did I mention I was really busy last weekend? I had a request to make a special 6th birthday cake featuring the birthday boy’s favorite Super Mario character Dry Bones. After doing extensive research digging through my son’s video game cases and also looking online, I created Dry Bones for the cake topper. Dylan was very excited about his cake and cupcakes when he saw them. I also made mini Super Mario characters for the cupcakes and made a special stand for the cake and cupcakes. The party was at Adventure Sports in Hershey. What a fun place for a party.

50th Wedding Anniversary Cake

This past weekend I have the pleasure of making this cake for a surprise 50th wedding anniversary party at the Colonial Country Club. The 3 tier cake was decorated with handmade sugar roses. The top 2 tiers were vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream and the bottom cake was dark chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream.

Cake class tonight at Cornerstone was awesome! The ladies were all so creative and I had so much fun sharing. I’ll post photos soon. I brought my camera but forgot to put the memory card in…oops.

Brittany’s Graduation

I had the pleasure of making cupcakes and a cake topper for Brittany who graduated from Camp Hill High School and also cosmetology school. Notice the little curler on the cake. Brittany also played softball and the paw print represents Camp Hill High. The cupcakes had grad caps and also circles with scissors embossed on them. The cake topper was chocolate cake with oreo buttercream filling and the cupcakes were vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and also nutty monkey.

I’m teaching another fondant cake decorating class tomorrow evening at the Cornerstone Cullinary Kitchen. The last one was so much fun, I’m sure tomorrow’s will be great too.

Sorry for the delay in posts. I have been so busy baking and decorating I finally had a chance to download photos from my camera.

Michelle and Alex’s Wedding Cake

It was a busy weekend at Sprinkles & Swirls. On Saturday, I created this 100+ serving 4 tier fondant covered cake for Michelle and Alex. The Aloha cake I made a couple of weeks ago was for their shower. Michelle loved a cake that was in the Confetti Cakes book by Elise Strauss. The leaves in the book were done in brown, but she wanted the leaves and scrolling on her cake in the bright pink color that matched her bridesmaid’s dresses. I changed the concept by doing all the scrolling in fondant instead of royal icing. It was a little more work, but I loved the results. The top two tiers were marble cake with vanilla buttercream, the second tier was red velvet with vanilla buttercream and the bottom tier was chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream. I also made an additional sheet cake to feed the additional 70+ guests. Just a tip for the brides out there…to save some money, order sheet cakes to supplement your wedding cake if you have a lot of guests. The reception was at the Officer’s Club at the Navy Depot in Mechanicsburg. It is a really elegant venue for a reception with a wonderful staff. You don’t even have to be in the military to reserve the facility.
